Photograph Number 2 is incorrect.

ENIAC was not the First Computer. The British built " Colossus Computer " was built 3 years earlier in 1943.

Not entirely.

It only stated in the photo that it was "THE ENIAC, the first computer ever built" which is partially correct, it did not say that it was "the first computer ever built in the world". The only mistake is he didn't add "in the US" on the description.


Colossus was the world's first electronic digital programmable computer.



The US-built ENIAC[23] (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) was the first electronic programmable computer built in the US.

a reply to: joshint #22 was one that caught my attention. I learned something today. I did not know they could stop the flow of water at the Niagara Falls. Thank you for the article.

Thanks for finding and sharing these photos. The one of Custer and his men is astounding. Somebody has done a fantastic job of colorizing this as I don't think they had color photography back then!

Colossus was the first computer built, at Bletchly park, in England. (according to Wikipeadia)

Yep, I've already seen a lot of it here on ATS alone.
But some of it I haven't really seen which is nice. And I've learned a lot from it.

i totally agree these are representative of the past and have absolutely changed the way i view the world
i can guarantee you these are not just a bunch of out of context photographs depicting people smiling (hey theyre getting their picture taken after all) and showing the past in a much more positive light then we all would have experienced

if history has taught me anything its that at the very least our more recent ancestors where a bunch of god damned monsters and you could do just about anything as long as you had more people supporting you or you didnt get caught
we always look upon the past with favor... but the truth is it was pretty F%(#ed up.... which is why we dont live like that anymore

Excellent stuff. Every time I see a headline about rare photos, I think I've already seen them all. Then I click the link and see 20-30 I haven't seen before. Thanks.

The one of Obama doesn't look at all like him. Take a good look, someone may claim that is him, but it sure doesn't look like it to me.

Someone with a facial recognition program needs to run a current pic and this one to see if it is legit, or if someone is trying to pass the pic off as him for some reason. Sure doesn't look like him at all.

Agreed. This isn't Obama.
At least the other pics show a resemblance to the people.

I thought the Jobs and Gates pic was good, also the Clinton and JFK pic.

#4 - Albert Einstein. Did men wear shoes like that in his day, or are those... I'm not judging. Serious question. Are those mens' shoes?
